Erica and Jesse on Cherry Twist


Start with some thin slab moves (5.10ish) to a high first bolt. Move left to the arete, then power through steep sandy jugs over a bulge. Cop a rest on a little ledge, than continue up the bulging arete above through some thinner moves (crux). Finish on cool black patina. This route has cool movement but lower rock quality than most routes at WW. In particular, watch for one large loose jug in the first overhang, and one large loose bit of patina up high. And watch for sand all over the damn thing.


On the east wall, just upstream from the rappel in, directly across from the Hanging Judge. This route is the leftmost of three that can be started off of a small sandy beach.


Many bolts (11 or 12?) to chains
